This is looking like a sad case of liberal DA/Judge policy letting out a career criminal for the 10th time on 1000 bail.  2 days ago was released and reports are in a stabbing incident 1/2 hour before his escape thru the parade route and eventually it narrowed from 4 lanes to two and he started running over people.   Questions are was he being chased by cops, why did he keep passing by the parade and not turn away on a side street before he ran out of clear road, and then the most puzzling to me, why did he back in to a house driveway versus pull strait in and run.   If they have correctly identified the perp though it is 10 years of crimes and "do better" slap on the wrist in Milwaukee that led to this.

If you search the name provided by Markowicz, the person is a convicted felon with a long criminal record who was released on $1,000 cash bail for his latest charges on November 19, just two days ago.

(Snip) has open charges filed November 5, 2021, in Milwaukee courts for resisting an officer (misdemeanor), felony bail jumping, second degree recklessly endangering safety (felony) with domestic abuse assessments, disorderly conduct and battery (both misdemeanors, also with domestic abuse assessments.)

He posted $1,000 cash bail on November 19, 2021.

That’s despite the fact he has another open felony case in Milwaukee County, from 2020.

That case is for second-degree recklessly endangering safety – felony with use of a dangerous weapon (two counts) and possessing firearm convicted of a felony (felony charge.) The case was filed in July 2020, but it remains pending.

He has these prior convictions:

Bail jumping (misdemeanor) and marijuana possession (misdemeanor).

Amid Unspeakable Horrors, Waukesha Teaches All Of Us What It Means To Be A Community

WAUKESHA, Wis. — Guitar For Life Cafe was one of the only unlocked doors on West Main St. in downtown Waukesha on Monday morning, so I stepped inside to buy a cup of coffee. It quickly became clear the shop wasn’t actually open for business.

The cafe was dark behind the front counter, with a handful of people scattered among the wooden hightops and stools, nursing paper cups of steaming coffee. It wasn’t immediately apparent when they were all doing there. A kind man pointed me in the direction of the complimentary dispenser: “Help yourself.”

I soon learned his name was Dan Faustmann. He’s been downtown for 14 years and has had the cafe and guitar studio on the corner of Main St. and West Broadway for two. On Monday, he opened his shop for chilly members of the press to warm up and anyone else in the community who needed a place to go to process what they’d all been through just hours before.

A tear rolled down his cheek as looked out the window at the abandoned strollers, lawn chairs, and blankets strewn across the curb along the street marked with candy and chalk circles, recounting the harrowing events of Sunday night, when an SUV plowed into the crowd, killing five and injuring at least 48, according to police.:snip:

Waukesha parade attack victim, 11, makes her family laugh despite injuries: 'Just glue me back together'

Jessalyn Torres, 11, was dancing with her fellow members of the Waukesha Xtreme Dance Team in the city's Christmas parade in Wisconsin on Sunday when a suspect driving an SUV plowed into the young girls and other parade participants. 

"She was directly impacted by the vehicle," Ryan Kohnke, Jessalyn's uncle and a Waukesha resident who attended the parade, told Fox News Digital on Tuesday. "It looks like she might have heard the commotion behind her and turned and it hit her."

She is one of several members of the dance team who remained in a hospital's intensive care unit late Tuesday following the tragedy. :snip:

Waukesha parade horror made possible by left-wing district attorneys' attempts at bail reform, critics say

Attempts at criminal bail reform that put violent offenders like Waukesha suspect Darrell Brooks Jr. out on the street at low or no cost is endangering communities around the country, according to experts on criminal justice and law enforcement.

Police in cities including Milwaukee, New York, Chicago and Los Angeles are facing understaffing and low morale — in part due to such policies, according to Betsy Brantner Smith, a retired police sergeant and spokesperson for the National Police Association.

"These extremely liberal prosecutors who want to talk about restorative justice, and what that means is is that we are putting the public in danger by trying to give these people too many opportunities to re-offend," she said. "It's incredibly frustrating for law enforcement, and it's just absolutely dangerous for our communities.":snip:

The Morning Report - 11/24/21

—J.J. Sefton

Good morning, kids. Wednesday and as we head into the Thanksgiving weekend, my favorite holiday of all, it's paradoxically extremely difficult as well as remarkably easy to be thankful given the nightmare of pain, suffering, fear and uncertainty of the future we find ourselves in. The darker things get, the easier it is to see light from the remarkable individuals in our lives and around us. As a case in point, and a metaphor in its own right, is the NFL and one of its players. No, it's not you-know-who but someone who is the exact opposite in every possible way:

J.J. Watt will reportedly pay for any funeral costs of those killed by a black nationalist during a Christmas parade Sunday night in Wisconsin. The Arizona Cardinals star hails from Waukesha, where six people have now died and about 50 more were injured, when Darrell Brooks drove his SUV through a large crowd at the town's annual Christmas parade. The horrific rampage likely hits close to home for Watt, who was born in the city of 70,000 and played football just north of town at Pewaukee High School . . .

. . . In a sports and media world where selfish narcissists and disingenuous hacks get outsized attention, J.J. Watt remains one of the good guys.      :snip: http://ace.mu.nu/archives/396646.php

The Consequences of Leftist Crime Policies - Ben Shapiro

This week, a 39-year-old black man in Waukesha, Wisconsin, plowed a maroon Ford Escape into a Christmas parade of children and older women. Five people were killed and another 48 were injured. The motive of the suspect is unknown; if the media have their way, it will remain that way. The media apparently only care about why suspects commit violent acts when motives can be credited to their political enemies.

There is one thing we do know: the suspect should not have been on the street. He had a rap sheet longer than the first five books of the Bible. His latest alleged crime took place on Nov. 5, when he was charged with resisting an officer, bail jumping, recklessly endangering safety, disorderly conduct and battery. First, he allegedly slammed the mother of his child with his fist, and then ran her over—wait for it—in a maroon Ford Escape. He was released on Friday … on $1,000 bail. Two days later, he ran his vehicle over innocent victims.:snip:

Milwaukee district attorney shines spotlight on liberal prosecutors

A self-described "progressive" district attorney at the center of the Waukesha Christmas parade massacre claims to be the inspiration for a wave of liberal prosecutors whose policies are increasingly coming under scrutiny.

The so-called "bold reformer" district attorney for Milwaukee County, John Chisholm, took responsibility and launched an internal investigation into his office Monday for setting bail "inappropriately low" for Darrell Brooks Jr., who was released on bond two days before allegedly running an SUV through a crowd of pedestrians in Wisconsin, killing at least six and injuring dozens more. Brooks had been released two days before the rampage on a $1,000 bail. He was in custody because he allegedly ran over his child’s mother with a car earlier this month.

Chisholm has served in his position since 2007 and has worked his entire career to reform the cash bail system, arguing it systemically criminalizes the impoverished. He once admitted his policy implementations toward the cash bail system could make the city of Milwaukee more dangerous, according to an interview from his first year in office.

Despite this startling admission, Chisholm writes on his website that he is a “bold reformer with a track record of keeping our community safe," and he claims to be the inspiration for multiple other liberal prosecutors.

“Progressive prosecutors in Philadelphia, Boston, St. Louis, and San Francisco have followed in John’s footsteps and designed similar programs,” his website states.:snip:

Sens. Johnson, Baldwin condemn outside groups for trying to 'exploit' Waukesha tragedy

The senators called for political actors to 'cease and desist'

Wisconsin’s Democrat and Republican senators issued a joint statement Saturday warning of outside individuals or groups exploiting the Waukesha Christmas Parade attack for political gain and urged them not to do so. 

 "It has come to our attention that outside individuals or groups may attempt to exploit the tragedy that occurred last Sunday in Waukesha for their own political purposes," Republican Sen. Ron Johnson and Democrat Sen. Tammy Baldwin said in a joint statement. "As the U.S. Senators representing Wisconsin, one from each political party, we are asking anyone considering such action to cease and desist."

The statement continued, "We have full confidence in the local officials who responded with extraordinary professionalism, competence, integrity and compassion. They have many difficult duties to perform in the coming days, weeks, and months, and they should be afforded the respect and support they deserve to undertake their responsibilities without outside interference."

The two senators explained that the top priority to "begin the healing process" is "providing comfort and support to surviving family members of the deceased, and those injured both in body and spirit.":snip:
